Short and sweet -- We stayed here for a week with our young daughters -- ages 2 and 4. What a terrific resort when traveling with young kids! Here's what's great about the resort: 1) NANNIES!!!!, 2) rooms are huge, 3) the scenery is beautiful, and 4) the kids are kept busy and happy with terrific activities just for them....

Just returned from a wonderful week with my wife and two young children (4, 1) at FDR. Thanks to the Trip Advisor reviews my expectations were in check and I was pleasantly surprised. First things first, I agree with almost everyone who has written a review…our Nanny (Kerise) was absolutely the highlight of the trip. She was wonderful with our...

This was our 4th visit to FDR, and this time we extended our stay to 2 weeks. Talk about relaxation! NANNIES: The nannies are the lifeblood of FDR. Where else can you go and have your own vacation nanny from 9AM to 4:40PM (with a break for lunch)? It takes no time whatsoever for your kids to get to know...

After driving past and dropping tourists off at some of Jamaica's modern major resorts arrival at FDR was a little underwhelming: it's not a mega resort and its not very new. However, the next morning when we met with our nanny it all began to change. Our kids were immediately at ease with the nanny assigned to us (and trust...

This was our second trip to the FDR. Our initial impression was that the resort seemed a bit run down since last year. The occupany was low we had some ants in our room, we thought we had made a bad mistake. I called another resort and tried to relocate but was unable. I mentioned to my kids that we...

Spent Christmas 2009 there and loved every minute. The nanny aspect was perfect for our 2 year old so we could do water sports with our 10 year old or just relax as a family. Only one suggestion...add hand sanitizers to all dining area entries, kids areas, and nannies should carry at all times. My 2 year old was sick...

Our trip to FDR was an amazing vacation experience. The staff are wonderful and the daily activities for kids and adults are a blast. We LOVED Sherdene, our nanny. Good fitness center and tons of exercise if you're interested. If you're not, you can spend an entire day lounging by the pool or ocean (or both). Can't say enough wonderful...

It's impossible to really sum up in a few short sentences the feeling our family gets when we step off the bus and into the reception area at FDR.

“A room with a view of the ocean is always much better and rooms further from the pool would be quieter.”
